This honesty and enthusiasm is captured best in her live performances, which features Sarah on vocals and acoustic guitar, along with a stripped down band that rocks
August 16 Stage Door Canteen (Dolphin Ukulele Ensemble, opening act)
A musical tour de force, Stage Door Canteen hits an audience with everything: from the unmistakable jump-swing of the early big band era, to the blistering arrangements of the latter day big bands, to horn-band standards by Chicago EW&F and Tower of Power, to the Latin sounds of Tito Puente and the Mambo Kings, to the fiery Celtic strains of pipes and whistles, to hip-shaking Motown, to unbelievable reinventions of radio hits by Van Morrison and the B52s.
August 23 Grace and the RSO (Michele Colley dancers, opening act)
Grace Morrison and the RSO are an Americana indie-folk quintet. The band formed in 2010, emerging out of the fertile New England music scene. All five musicians are classically trained. Their vocal harmonies organically blend together with a down to earth and refreshing sound, as evident in the lead single ‘Stuck on You’. Much of Grace’s lyrical content is taken straight from the pages of history, she playfully tells these stories and more during their live performances and the fans enjoy it!
